Data Management and Innovative Support for Long-term Watershed Research: The Walt Jeffrey Project

Named in honor of the "father of forest hydrology in Western Canada," this project seeks to capture the value of long-term research and data sets.

Long-term watershed research is essential, but often expensive. To ensure that these projects provide all the value they can, the Water Program is digitizing old data sets and integrating them into publicaly accessible databases. The team is also publishing summaries of all long-term sites in Alberta dating back to the 1960s.
